Today in the MMA Twitter World: Josh Koscheck Attacks and Chael Sonnen Prepares
What would you do without Twitter? Without the immediate reminisces of thousands of fans who confirmed that they too remember watching Junior Seau play football? Ah, Twitter. It's exasperating at times, but it keeps me in tune with the world of MMA. Who is sponsoring whom? What fights does Joe Silva have lined up for us? What random scavenger hunts has Dana White set up today?
Keeping up with Twitter is a daunting task. It's easy to miss things—and that's why I'll be here every evening, breaking down the day's best and most important tweets.
Today, a fighter pays close attention to the rankings, reporters crack jokes and Josh Koscheck goes on the offensive.
Fighter Left off Rankings; Not Happy!
Tara LaRosa is an MMA pioneer. And she is not happy at being left off the Unified Women's MMA Rankings top 10 list at 135 pounds. It's always funny when a fighter gets caught up in things like this. Understandable. But funny.
Dana White's Scavenger Hunt
I've always thought it would be fun to compete in one of these UFC scavenger hunts. I'd just run around randomly yelling "UFC in NYC!" and hope for the best.
You know who thinks Dan Henderson is the best fighter of all time? Crazy people. And Chael Sonnen.
Dan was good for a long time. That's not quite the same thing. When was Dan the best fighter in the division? Can you name one moment in time he was the best in the world?
Fatty, Fatty Two by Four
Roy Nelson fat jokes will never get old. Scratch that. If you aren't named Roy Nelson, Roy Nelson fat jokes will never get old.
Why I Love Twitter
Mike Straka speaks an obvious truth. I will confirm it here. Lavar Johnson is indeed a giant man. But it's Jason Moles who takes it to the next level, matching an obvious observation with an obvious "That's what she said" joke. And together? It's a glorious moment.
Josh Koscheck Making Friends
Just a couple of days ago my boy Jeremy Botter told you about the biggest heels in all of MMA. Today, Josh Koscheck confirmed his place on the list with an attack on the media.
MMA Fighting's EKC wore the rebuke like a badge of honor.
MMA Media Borg
Jennifer Swift goes off on MMA media hypocrisy. MMA Weekly's Damon Martin says "not so fast." Painting with broad strokes is for bozos.
No More Mr. Nice Guy
Good thing we got our Chael interview in last month. He's getting his game face on for July.
Talk Is Cheap; Chael Is Also Putting in Work
Chael isn't just talking the talk. He's working with one of the top Brazilian Jiu Jitsu players on the planet to improve his ground game.
Pat Barry's Hair Is the Best Hair
Pat Barry has jokes for days. I love that hair style, though.
